Here's Your Chance
We want to feature a photograph each
week to accompany this Synagogue
List. Your congregations are busy
doing special things all the time. This
is a great place to showcase them.
Were looking for candid photographs
featuring action — nothing posed.
Please submit photos to us for consid-
eration. We will share the wealth and
rotate among the congregations.
We prefer digital images sent by e-
mail. High resolution. High quality.
Timely. Not too many people. Full iden-
tification — name and city as well as
the ages of children. With your photos,
send information about the event —
what, who, when, where and why.
Include a contact and daytime phone
number. Send it all to Sy Manello at
smanello©thejewishnews.com or call
Charity begins at home. There is
the obligation to provide for your
own family's basic needs before
providing for others.
